Eden is the oldest natural and organic food company in North America and the largest independent manufacturer of dry grocery organic foods. We are deeply rooted in Michigan about twenty miles southwest of Ann Arbor. It is here we manage grower relations, manufacturing, trucking, quality control, customer and retailer services, marketing, import/export, accounting, databases and websites.
Over 95% of EDEN foods are sold in natural food stores, co-ops, and supermarkets via traditional natural and grocery distribution channels. Web site, employee, and wholesale sales make up the remainder.
All EDEN food moves through one of our warehouses in either southeast Michigan or central California.
In 2008 Eden completed a 70,000 ft2 Michigan warehouse addition. Design, construction, and operation reflect our commitment to sustainable growth and follow LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) principles. Our original builder's son utilized 80% recycled steel forged in the area. It uses energy efficient lights and insulation, preserves native flora, and is good-neighbor landscaped for our very close residential neighbors. This warehouse meets a gold LEED certification level, the second highest possible rating.
Eden tracks the environmental impact of its food upstream with suppliers, through company operations, and downstream monitoring all its social impacts. Energy consumption and waste are tracked using custom in-house tools.
In 2009 Eden Foods was selected as the best food company in the world, and the third best company overall by The Better World Shopping Guide. They acknowledged Eden's outstanding record in social and environmental responsibility. The company earned A+ and A ratings in ten food categories.
